Surprisingly Good

I'm not going to lie, I was expecting this place to be an Olive Garden knock off (I mean come on, the olive tree? lol) but it was actually really good food. I had the cream of crab soup and the blackened fettucini alfredo, both phenomenal. And the soup and salad are way better then that other... read more

My husband and I have visited The Olive Tree several times. Their spaghetti is oh so delicious. Great salad bowl/bread sticks come with every meal. Their Lasagna is also very good. The crab cakes are so so. Their fish (depending on what you like) is also good.

We have not eaten here in several months so we took our daughter and grandsons when there was a 50 minute wait at Outback (at 5 PM). We were seated immediately and had a very pleasant waitress. The menu changed a couple of years ago and some of my favorites are no longer available but the menu has enough variety... More

We had a lovely Saturday afternoon lunch. Fantastic menu of sandwiches, entrees,salads. Portions are very generous and prices very fair. Our waitress was excellent filling our drinks and helping out through out the meal. Will go back the next time we are in the area.

We went to dinner here when we stayed in Glen Burnie, Maryland. Our meals were absolutely fabulous! The portions are generous and the pricing is reasonable. We like to try local places when we travel and this did not disappoint either of us.

Having never been here before, I gave it a try with a staff member. Service was friendly and efficient but the food left much to be desired. I had a pasta dish with a salad. The ingredients in the salad were good, but there was so much dressing on it, I couldn't taste anything else. The pasta dish, Italian sausage... More

My son in law and daughter love this place, so I took them to dinner one evening on their recommendation. The food was good, but our service was less than stunning. The evening we were there it wasn't too crowded, and our server appeared to only have a couple of tables, the other that cleared shortly after we arrived. However,... More

While staying in Aberdeen we found this restaurant was nearby and decided to check it out. So glad we did. It was just my husband and I for dinner and we had a great waitress-very friendly, personable, not overly present, prompt. Nice wine and beer selection. We ordered the crab wontons as an appetizer and they were to die for!... More

We usually go here as a party of 11 for family occasions. They always accommodate us with or without reservations. Service is usually good but most times excellent. The food is good, seating is good, drink specials available. Salad and bread sticks before the meal hit the spot and calm antsy kids. The cream of crab soup is a good... More
